Today's the day! 2008 SUMMER GARDEN TOUR
Here are a few pictures from my country garden taken a couple of years ago. Be sure to visit Notes from a Cottage Industry to visit other bloggers participating in the summer tour today. The first picture is a coffee table I made in one of the sitting areas in our yard. It is an old chicken crate topped with a vintage tea kettle full of sweet petunias.
Azaleas, prairie sage and my angel birdfeeder.
Pots of herbs set on an old cast iron woodburning stove.
My angel garden full of pink primroses. The concrete angel was gift from my husband's family when my father passed away. The birdbath is an MIJ umbrella stand with the bowl from an old pitcher and bowl set placed on top. While the idea was good, we soon realized that we could only fill the bowl half full or the water was over the little birdies' heads.
This is part of the stone path we put in the "secret garden" behind our house. In the center is another garden angel among iris and chrysanthemums.
I started this Carolina jasmine from a little sprig and within a year it had covered the fence with its fragrant blossoms and pretty green vine. The flowers are actually bright yellow.
An old red wagon filled with pots of grape petunias and other blooming flowers.
I created this outdoor "picture" with an old window screen, some silk flowers and attached a row of hooks.
Here is my "flower bed". This was fun.....I painted an old cast iron bed and then filled it with iris and wild phlox.
Last of all, a trio of old metal lawn chairs.....perfect for sitting in the evening shade and sipping sweet tea or lemonade.
